Oil Of Oregano has many valuable therapeutic uses.
This unique combination of food quality Oil of Oregano with Extra Virgin Olive Oil creates a pre-diluted blend that is stronger than many leading brands.
Oil of Oregano is 100% natural and steam distilled from the flowering tops of Origanum vulgare.

Origanum vulgare GC/IR Verified Oil of Oregano is rich in phenolic constituents including carvacrol, the active component in the Origanum species. In fact, it may well have first been used for its curative properties before its seasoning properties were discovered.
Throughout the centuries, oregano has been used to sooth coughs, calm digestive disorders, relax tension, and relieve insomnia.
Steam distillation: The plant material is placed on a screen in a steam still. Steam from a boiler is introduced under the screen where the plant material is held. The steam vaporizes the essential oil in the plant material.
Both steam and oil vapor rise to a condenser.
The steam and oil are condensed to a liquid, and fed to a receiving vessel. The essential oil rises to the top of the liquid in the receiving vessel. It is separated from the condensed steam liquid (water or hydrosols). The water may be returned to the boiler and reboiled into steam.
Cold Pressing: The whole fruit is scarified, which means the peel or rind is mechanically pierced to open the sacs containing the essential oil. The whole fruit is then pressed which squeezes out the juice and oil.
The oil and juice, which contains the peel and other fruit solids, are centrifuged to separate the liquids and solids. The oil liquid layer is then separated from the juice liquid layer.
